The Madison City Commission will consider approval of a resolution supporting the continued appropriation of Community Services Block Grant funds by the federal government during its meeting at 5:30 p.m. Monday at City Hall.
The resolution states that "the funding cut will drastically curb or end many of the vital economic security services to many of the needy citizens of Madison." Inter-Lakes Community Action Partnership, a Madison-based nonprofit organization, receives a major amount of its funding from the federal program.
The city commissioners will hear a request from Chris Francis of the Madison Arts Council to barricade a portion of S.E. 2nd St. on June 17.
The commissioners will meet with David Pitts of Madison to discuss issues related to a proposed recreational trail to Lake Herman.
They will hear the first reading of an ordinance requiring the installation of a tracer wire for any service lines connecting to a sanitary-sewer or water main. The commissioners will also review a resolution setting rates for water-main tapping and meter fees.
The commissioners have also scheduled an executive session to discuss contract negotiations.
